2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat VS. 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Which Type Are You?

Teenage years bring plenty of useful discoveries, with the cold, hard realisation that the perfect car doesn’t exist being one of them. In case your name isn’t on the rather short list of people who afford to make their own cars, you’ll have to make a compromise somewhere along the way to the dealership.

Nevertheless, choosing between a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is as near to impossible as such selections get.

At first, it might seem like the different genres to which these cars belong are enough to split the clientele. Well, you may be surprised to find out how many people would have a hard time placing their vote.

For one thing, both pack blown 6.2-liter hearts that love to melt our own hearts. Both the LT4 inside the ‘Vette and Hellcat, for which the Challenger lost an eye, will melt their tires when a feather drops on the throttle.

However, you can only do burnouts for so long. After the smoke clears, you’ll really have to choose your motoring destiny. This is why we’ve decided to come to the rescue of those who want one of these slabs of America.

Ladies and gentlemen drivers, feel free to use the personality test above in order to make up your mind about which one of the two suits your personality better.

What did you expect? Of course, we couldn’t be serious about this. Heck, if you want to be reasonable about purchasing an automobile, you shouldn’t buy any of these. Fortunately though, their insanity is just the right thing to keep (most of) those who don’t deserve them away.

What we can do though, is to open our own book and tell you we’d go for the Hellcat. Sure, the Z06 is the more complete car here, at least from the driving experience point of view. But the Hellcat is definitely the most extreme muscle car we’ve met so far, while the opinions on where the Z06 stands in the supercar world are split. You need look no further than the Viper in order to see just how questionable the supremacy of the otherwise brilliant Corvette Z06 is.

And since we want to provide reasonable consumer recommendations, we’ve also taken into account the possibility of the scheme above leaving one in doubt. We might address this potential issue with a new flow chart, but we need assistance from the Blue Oval’s side in order to do that.

Ford Performance is currently busy handling Voodoo naturally-aspirated matters, but once they turn to placing the S550 Mustang in the same sentence with a supercharger, we shell be happy to include a ‘Stang. Hellcats are difficult to find these days anyway, so you might want to wait for that to happen.
